Adventures in Comic-Boxing: TC, You Old Rascal, You!

Here's another example of a gag that only CHARLTON would have done! 

From TOP CAT # 8 (Charlton Comics, Cover Date: January, 1972), submitted for your approval (as Rod Serling would have said)!  Please feel free to draw you own conclusions, as I have drawn mine. 

Though I must admit "my conclusions" are rather different in 2020 than they were in late-1971, when this issue was first released.  Perhaps yours would be as well! 

TC, you old rascal, you!

“Donald Duck Finds Pirate Gold – After He Found it the First Time, But Before He Finds Pirate Gold Again – Whew!”


Somewhere between the classic "Donald Duck Finds Pirate Gold" (Dell Four Color #9, 1942) and the relatively well-known Italian sequel, "Donald Duck Finds Pirate Gold Again" (American English version in Donald Duck #366, 2011), there was this 1957 Brazilian oddity that seemed something of a hybrid of each!  

As dialogued by our great friend Achille Talon, it becomes a more spirited read than I could ever imagine it was in its original form - and so we present it here!  

Click to find yet another treasure!

Enjoy, and whatever you do... Don't go up in a pile of white hot duck dust!

Thanks for the nod to UNCLE SCROOGE (IDW) # 7, Achille!  

And, if a waterlogged parrot shows up at your door - pretend you're not at home!

Separated At Mirth: It REALLY IS "A Small World, After All!"

For today's "Mirth Separation" (...even if its not exactly all that "mirthful") we examine the cover of SHOWCASE #61 (DC Comics, Cover Date: March-April, 1966)...

...Which I've long regarded as one of the greatest DC covers of the Silver Age (TELL ME IT'S NOT!)...

...Along with this extraordinary moment from Tex Avery's immortal cartoon "King-Size Canary" (1947)!  

That little boat-ride at Disneyland had it right all along... "It's a Small World, Afff-terr Aaalll!"

Adventures in Comic-Boxing: "Peeping DINO!"

From DINO # 20 (Charlton Comics, Cover Date: January, 1977)...

...Here's the kind of one-page gag that ONLY Charlton would have done! 

What more could I possibly say!  

Ya just gotta love Charlton for what they were!  'Nuff Said!
